Yup. That was what I thought at that age, too.

Then I impulsively proposed to my girlfriend, and we were married for seven years.

Then I almost got married again.

Then I did get married again.

Once you pull your head out of the "I'm sticking it to the MAN, man!" mindset, you realize it has nothing to do with the government, and everything to do with the person you love.

Huh, I don't view it that way as an institutional sticking it to the man. To me, it's just another day. I saw the two get married, and kept thinking that they were the same people yesterday as they'll be tomorrow. But then, that's how I feel about birthdays and most other things, too.
